FPF: Marker Holder

13 May

Friends.  I have reservations about this pattern.  I’m nervous about sharing it with you.  I’m seriously, SERIOUSLY afraid that someone will turn me in to What Not To Crochet and I’ll be forever branded as, “that girl who crochets weird and stupid things.”


I recently side-loaded about ninety books onto my beloved Nookery Nook.  Since I don’t want to immediately archive these books once I’ve read them, I needed a good way to keep track.  I came up with the awesome and utterly original idea of…drumroll please…  MAKING A LIST!

Who Is This?

Yeah, I don’t know.  I searched Google for “list” and this girl came up in the image results.  Apparently this is what a list looks like.  Lists are pretty!

Ahem.  Anyway.

So I needed to find a way to carry the book list and a marker with my Nook.

The List (and a pretty pink marker)

So, uhm.  Don’t judge, okay?  I like to make lists, and I like to hilight things.

Here’s the pattern:

Stitches: half double, half double-increase, triple

ch 2

1: with a G hook, 6 hdc in 1st ch

2: hdc-inc around (12)

3: (hdc, hdc-inc) around (18)

4: tr around in every other stitch (9)

5: hdc, ch3 in each space (9)

6: tr around (9)

7: hdc around (9)

8: (hdc, ch3) around

9: tr around

10: hdc around

11: (hdc, ch3) around

12: hdc around

13: ch20, join to first ch with sl st, FO.

Okay.  So.  Pretty please don’t turn me in to the crochet police.  If you don’t have a Nook, then you could… umm… hang a marker on your key chain, or… hang it from a magnet on the fridge right by your grocery list…  Or… Yeah, I don’t know.  But just in case you’ve always wanted to know how to crochet a little pouch to keep a marker in, now you do.  *sigh*

…maybe if i say “VOILA” ?…     meh.  I need some coffee.

    I just crocheted a back for my remote control because the kids had broken the little tab off the back. The batteries kept falling out. Someetimes, you just have to crochet “weird” things that meet your needs! 🙂
